He's her everything! After months of speculation, Ariana Grande finally confirmed that she is in a relationship with rapper Big Sean.

The "Break Free" singer, 21, admitted in an interview with The Telegraph this week that Big Sean is her boyfriend. When asked by the publication if they are a couple, she answered simply, "Yes."

"He is one of the most amazing men in the whole world, and that includes my grandfather and my brother," Grande said of the "Beware" performer, 26. "I think the world of him, and he's an amazing person. That's kind of all there is to it."

The musicians were first rumored to be a couple this past August after they recorded the song "Best Mistake" together. "[We] make a lot of music together and the chemistry between me and her when we work is great," Sean said at the time. "We've been friends for years before anything else."

The relationship follows Big Sean's April split from Glee actress Naya Rivera. He and Rivera, 27, were engaged for six months before calling off their wedding plans. The TV star went on to get married in a surprise ceremony to model and actor Ryan Dorsey in July. 

Sean wasn't single for too long, however, as he found a new woman in Grande, who went through her own breakup from longtime boyfriend Jai Brooks this past August.

"It's gone from 0 to 60 fast," a source previously told Us Weekly of the relationship between Big Sean and Grande, who had "chemistry immediately."

"Sean asked Ariana out in a romantic way and they went to the movies," the insider added. "Now it's gotten serious very fast. They are much happier than in their previous relationships."

Though they tried to keep their coupling quiet, the two stars were photographed kissing on a theme park ride at Universal Studios Hollywood last week.
